Arena's Lookalike Camera Makes Hilarious Discoveries At Hockey Games

If you've ever been to a hockey game, you know the big screens that show you the action. They sometimes zoom in on people in the crowd, too. But there is one recent phenomenon that I need to tell you about.

The St. Louis Blues professional ice hockey team based in Missouri plays at the Enterprise Center in downtown St. Louis. And those games offer much more than the on-ice action. It's the hilarity behind the broadcasters that's been getting all the attention lately. So let me tell you more about it.

Check this out:

The broadcasters scan the audience during breaks to find anyone who resembles celebrities and well-known characters. Then they put them on the big screen in a split-screen scenario for everyone to see like this Sam The Snowman, and his real-life doppelganger, ha, ha.

They even did an all-Christmas edition, and I have to say it was pretty spot-on, huh? What do you think about this Scott Calvin sighting here? I think even the guy they featured pretty much agrees with them, eh?

If you're a fan of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, then you might get a kick out of this one. Oh, my goodness, ha, ha. Don't you think they got this one pretty right, too? Good job. I'm howling at this one.

Here's another famous character from Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, hee-heeWhat do you think of this resemblance here? I think they did a fantastic job again. And the kid is having the time of his life seeing himself on the big screen.

Marv from 'Home Alone'

Who's a fan of Home Alone? I have to admit I've watched this movie and its many sequels quite a few times, and it always makes me laugh. This guy here looks like he's enjoying his 60-seconds of fame. Right on!

Scut Farkus

Here's another Christmas classic that everyone adores. How many times have you watched A Christmas Story? Well, then you must be quite familiar with Scut Farkus. I don't know if this guy even knows him, but he's having a ball seeing himself on the screen.

Let me ask you: what movie do you always watch around the Christmas holidays? For me, in addition to Home Alone, I usually end up checking out Plains, Trains And Automobiles as it's one of my favorites. John Candy was the best, eh? So do you think this guy looks like him?

The Grinch

Well, well, well, if you're going to do Christmas lookalikes, then why not the Grinch himself, huh? I think they picked the right guy for the job. Am I right? He seems to be taking this game in stride, and that's really funny.

Elon Musk

Now, let's get to some celebrities' lookalikes. Shall we? What do you think of this Elon Musk doppelganger, huh? Does this guy resemble him or what? Hmm, it's not the best they have found, but it will pass. Do you agree with that?

Olivia Rodrigo

Okay, I have to admit I have no idea who this woman is, ha, ha. I guess she's some sort of singer/songwriter, huh? This is the first I've ever heard of her. Not sure if the person they picked to resemble her works out that well because of the mask and all, but I'll give them a pass on that one too, ha, ha.

LiL Nas X

Speaking of people I don't know, I'm not that current with singers, so this guy escapes me, too. But when I look at the person they chose, he does resemble him, no? So that's pretty dang good on them. I hope he and his buddies are having a good laugh about it.

Ted Lasso

Jason Sudekis is definitely blowing up with his Ted Lasso portrayal. I'll admit that I haven't watched this show but from what I hear, it's pretty good. Do you watch it? If you do, which character is your favorite? Anyway, I think they found a pretty darn good doppelganger here.

And This Ted Lasso

Whoa, it seems that there are more Ted Lasso fans out there, ha, ha. Or maybe he looks just like a regular guy. Either way, this guy here could be his stunt double, lol. Or perhaps his stunt beer drinker. What do you think?

Ben Affleck

I've got to tell you it can't be too hard to find a guy who resembles Ben Affleck. I mean, they picked just a typical guy, and he fits right in. Am I right? But the facial hair does make it a little easier here, no?

Scarlet Johansson

Okay, here's a similar situation. I mean, does this lady resemble Scarlet Johansson? Um, I don't think so. At least they could have picked someone with a similar hairdo, huh? But to be honest, it must've been pretty flattering. I would have been quite happy with that.

Zendaya

Speaking of hair, what do we have here, lol? Oh my goodness! I haven't seen Zendaya with this wild hairdo, but I guess this was the closest person they could find to fit that look. I don't know how she would feel about this, but something tells me she would have a good laugh indeed.

Tom Cruise

At first glance, this guy looks more like Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad than Tom Cruise. But I suppose he could pass for the latter if you blink quickly, lol. What do you think? Do you agree with me, or do you agree with the broadcasters? Let's do a poll here.

Tom Holland

Who here is a fan of Spiderman? Which one was your favorite, the Toby McGuire one, the Andrew Garfield, or the Tom Holland one? Well, honestly, I loved the Toby McGuire trilogy. But I can't say anything bad about the other two. And this guy here is a pretty good Tom Holland doppelganger.

Wasn't this fun or what?

Honestly, I wish more places would do something as cool as this lookalike camera, ha, ha. It definitely makes the games more exciting, no? Now that I've seen it, I wouldn't mind going to check out a sports game, even though it's not typically my thing. How about you? Would you go just so you can watch this on the screen?
